Remarkable Progress on Our Journey Towards No-Kill Cat 2025: A Year in Review

As we near the end of 2023, we at the Montgomery Humane Society are excited to share the inspiring progress we have made towards achieving our No-Kill Cat 2025 initiative. Our collective efforts are bringing us ever closer to a future where every cat’s life is valued and protected.

Closing in on Our Goal:

This year has been monumental. We are now just 103 cats away from reaching our target – a significant improvement from the 330-cat gap we faced last year. This achievement marks a pivotal moment in our journey towards creating a no-kill community for our feline friends.

A Leap in Lifesaving Efforts:

We have witnessed a remarkable decrease in cat deaths, from 524 to 274. This reduction of 250 cats signifies not just numbers, but lives – each with their own story and a chance for a better future.

Advancements in Kitten Care:

Our focus on the most vulnerable population, the Unweaned Kittens, has resulted in a notable increase in their save rate, from 44.88% to 59.44%. The continued dedication to this sensitive group has led to a decrease in deaths from 199 to 131, underscoring our commitment to even the smallest and most fragile lives.

Success Stories Across All Ages:

  • Weaned Kittens: Their save rate has impressively jumped from 71.19% to 84.37%, with the No-Kill Gap significantly dropping from 137.1 kittens to just 36.4.
  • Adult Cats: These mature felines have seen a life-saving increase in their save rate to 94.33%, moving the No-Kill Gap from 39.4 to -32.1, an indication of more lives being saved than lost.

Overall Impact:

Collectively, these efforts have elevated our Save Rate for All Cats to 83.98%, edging us closer to the 90% benchmark. The No-Kill Gap for All Cats has been reduced dramatically from 339.4 to 103 cats.

A Heartfelt Thank You:

We owe this success to you, our community. Your support, whether through volunteering, donations, adopting, or simply spreading the word, has been instrumental in every life saved. Let’s continue on this trajectory, with our sights set on not just meeting but exceeding a Gross Save Rate of 90%.

Together, we are making a difference. Let’s keep up the great work for our feline friends!
